The newsreels are dead. We’ve bored the public for too long. Give me this opportunity and I’ll prove it. But may I say one more thing—you haven’t seen my best yet.
The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.
